Basement Excavation

As our heat wave continues, Frankie decided to take over Cheoah’s basement excavation project under the coveted picnic table.

Something is backwards here.

Something is backwards here.

Frankie is normally found on top of the picnic table and Cheoah underneath, but Frankie decided to seek out the cooler temperatures below. He had to expand it for his bigger body, but soon settled in for an afternoon nap.

Ahhhhh - this is nice.

Ahhhhh – this is nice.

Hu-Dad thought you might be a little challenged in seeing exactly how deep the project has become, so he took a ground level picture. Note that only Frankie’s head is above ground level.

Think you made it deep enough?

Cheoah may have lost her basement to her big brother, but she said there was still plenty of room under the picnic table.

Room for two.

Room for two.

P.S. – For those of you who are curious, we reached a high of 76ΒΊF yesterday, cooler than Saturday, but still very hot by our standards.

    hmmmm – it would appear some of The T.Herd read Mutts πŸ™‚

    I’m pretty sure The Nice Karen Lady in Khanada with The PCT’s would be proud of his shelter work!

    It will be 96 today here in my area of Georgia. But the girls don’t stay out very long…they come running back in because they are rotten! However, if there was a neat basement like this, I believe they would be fighting over it. Good job pups!! Good job!
